Patch 1.15 Now Live on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Last night, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception multiplayer received quite the update last night when Patch 1.15 deployed, improving gameplay mechanics, balance issues, tournament features, and of course, providing players with more taunts to show off during matches.  Check out the full list of changes/improvements via the Naughty Dog Blog below:

Matchmaking

  • Players will be appropriately matched according to Legacy level in matchmaking.

Team Balancing

  • Team balancing will now take into account players’ Legacy level.

Tournament

  • New gun skins for Tournament tier rewards will roll out over the next several months.  The new guns skins this month are the Fireball M9, Dragon Sniper and FAL-SS.
  • New Shade custom pieces for silver and bronze tier. The new pieces are the Shade Gas Mask, Shade Belling Mask, Shade Headphones, Shade Dark Vest and Shade Biker Jacket.

  • There is a new leader board for single tournament scores
  • Players can see all Players’ Tournament Tier in the scoreboard during a match. This will happen only if the player is ranked in the Tournament
  • Spending a tournament ticket increases your treasure drop chances for that match. This also makes rare treasures more likely to drop. 
  • Players will now receive a small amount of points based on their kills and deaths for losing during a tournament game.
  • Tournament formula change:

 

Winning

Points = [1000 + (100*kills) + (25*assists) – (80*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)] 

Minimum = 200, Max = 6000

 

Losing

Points = Points = [100 + (10*kills) + (2.5*assists) – (8*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)] 

Minimum = 100, Max = 500
